I think it seems everyone is selling the SCT tune as their tune... food for thought. I bought the SCT and put their tune on my car, I am impressed.

FSwerks, Cobb and Unleashed Tuning all support the new ST. All the tunes are different in their own way from each company. It's not "SCT's tune" that they're all selling.

SCT provides the tuner and tools to their network of tuners so they can tune the car... Yes, the ST has had a tuning option for awhile.

Glad to hear your vote of confidence.
You could always carve off the integrated exhaust manifold off the head & make a bigger & better turbo manifold & possibley work on the head also. Similar what you can do on a ISB cummins intake manifold. For sure single scroll turbo.

if sct has gained 30-40 and steeda 10 from their intake then you shoulde be able to expect atleast 40 from the steeda intake and a tune.
All these parts have to be intergrated= work together. A reflash on a stock st will get you xx more power, then add other parts & then you need to have another reflash for the new parts that you just added. And who say's they are going to work together? Get me a ST, all the parts you want to throw on it & pay for some dyno time & I'd be glad to install them. Sounds like fun. On a carburetored 5.0 say, Try throwing parts at that= different heads, require different size headers= primary tube lenghts & primary tube diameters, & then you have different cams to add to the mix & then intake manifold's & carbs. Then you get to recurve the dist.=how fast & how far the curve. Sounds like fun, huh.

Got My ST3 a couple of days before x-mass. The window tint is done, the fog light bulbs are exchanged for 100W 8K bulbs.
Now just waiting for a short shifter.
